This sliver of a wine bar and tapas joint is ideal for drinking solo or with a pal (larger groups will have a hard time finding a seat). Settle in at the wood bar or at one of the stools alongside the stone walls, and choose from the well-curated list of French wines. Charcuterie is sliced right in front of you at the bar; there is also a daily menu (on the chalkboard) with affordable, nicely turned-out small plates like grilled dorado, zucchini beignets, and lamb kebabs.
Yep, you read that right—Freddy's is pretty much as approachable as French wine bars get. Their food is also fantastic, and you could definitely make a dinner out of bellying up to their cozy bar. We came here three out of our seven nights in Paris we loved it so much.
